The 2009 legislature adjourned April 26 and sent 66 House and 118 Senate files to the Governor. The Iowa General Assembly Web site includes a complete list of all Enrolled bills and action taken on those bills, as well as a list of Code sections amended.

Each year the Office of Policy and Legislative Services reviews all new legislation and compiles transportation- and government-related bills into one publication. The publication, 2009 Iowa Acts for the DOT, includes 47 of the House and Senate files passed by the General Assembly during the 2009 regular session.
